The former SC Villa and Uganda Cranes midfielder was appointed coach after the unceremonious vacation of Dan Ogwal Engwedo.

The youthful coach has marked down a winning start on Thursday in an Elgon group encounter, but this will not come easy against an inform Simba FC that is yet to lose at their home grounds.
